Have been staying here for 2 weeks now. Its clean, breakfast is good, coffee is great, and employees are the best. Very helpful and always with a smile. Every time I've asked for assistance they've been more than willing to point me in the right direction.

Stayed there for 3 months and what a great hotel. Friendly staff, great management, free daily breakfast and additional free food options in the afternoon Mon-Wed. Equipped with pool, two outside grills, gym and hot tub. Apartments, although a bit outdated, include full kitchen and hotel provides a daily room service. I rarely write a review that is all positive...

At first I was a little skeptical about the rooms opening to the outside, due to security reason. However, I quickly got over it. This place is safe, and in a tidy location with quick access to the 163 Freeway. The rooms here are absolutely beautiful and efficient. The hotel offers breakfast daily and a mixer social that offers food...

My occupation requires that I stay at a lot of hotels. This is by far my favorite. The accomodations are very clean, the food at the continental breakfast and "social hour" is very good and the staff is excellent. And it has been this way every time I've stayed here over the past few years. Tom G

Stayed here for a week during Spring Break for a family vacation.

Really nice place to stay. It's the first time I stayed at a Residence Inn. It feels like an apartment complex, and thus made it feel more like a home away from home than staying in a hotel.
